While there has not been an update for the standings so far in the Naruto character popularity poll, there is a second special poll that you can take part in for a limited time. From January 5-17, 2023, you can vote for which character you would want to learn from the most. As per usual, you can place your votes at the official website for the Naruto P99 poll.
The “Whose Apprentice Would You Like to Become?” poll does not include all of the Naruto characters. It consists of five who have been teachers or mentors in the series. Even then, it does not include everyone. Your options for this Naruto poll are:
- Asuma Sarutobi
- Kakashi Hatake
- Might Guy
- Minato Namikaze (Fourth Hokage)
Characters like Kurenai and Tsunade are absent, for some reason. This is despite the fact that Kurenai was the leader of Team 8, and Tsunade was Sakura’s teacher during the timeskip. In Kurenai’s case, this might be because we did not see her have a special bond with a particular student. For Asuma, we saw a lot of scenes between him and Shikamaru during the Naruto series.
The Naruto popularity poll is still ongoing and will take votes until January 31, 2023. As a reminder, the winner of this poll will get a short manga centering on them.
